As I have mentioned, I will be giving a presentation in Anaheim in August at the annual convention of the American Accounting Association. I will be talking about this blog (and, hence, some of my ideas about teaching) for 75 minutes. (When it comes to teaching, I can easily talk for many hours.)
Over the last couple of years, I have written 166 entries on this blog. I think some have been pretty good but others have been rather stupid. In writing and in teaching, that is how it goes. Perfection is never my goal. I like to throw out a lot of ideas and hope that a reasonable number are helpful.
My idea for this presentation in August is that I will talk about some of the blog entries that have been the most helpful to teachers out there in colleges around the world. However, I can only guess at that. So, I would like to enlist some help from YOU.
If you think that any of these 166 essays have been especially interesting or insightful, please let me know. Just drop me a note at Jhoyle@richmond.edu and give me the title.
In teaching, you can usually look in the eyes of the students and know what is working and what is not working. Writing a blog is different -- there are no eyes for me to study, no body language for me to try to interpret. I do get email feedback occasionally but not enough for me to know which essays might have been most beneficial.
If there are one or two of these essays that you think I should discuss out in Anaheim, please let me know. I really would appreciate the help.
